The Mr. Gay UK competition is an event held in the United Kingdom to discover an individual from the gay community who embodies a positive and confident image. It was established back in 1982. Has since become a significant occasion in the lgbtq+Q+ community in the UK organized by the lgbtq+Q+ magazine, Gay Times.

The main goal of this contest is to celebrate the diversity and talent within the lgbtq+Q+ community in the UK while promoting messages of inclusion, acceptance and pride. Contestants are evaluated based on factors like their appearance, personality, communication skills and ability to connect with the audience during different rounds such as interviews, talent showcases and catwalks.

Participants often represent cities or regions across the UK. The winners of competitions progress to compete at national level for the prestigious title of Mr. Gay UK. The crowned winner not receives the title but also becomes an advocate, for lgbtq+Q+ rights and awareness by participating in events and promoting a positive image of the community.

Over its history this competition has seen winners who have pursued successful careers in entertainment, media and activism.
Scott Neal, who was crowned Mr. Gay UK in 1993 and later appeared in the movie "Beautiful Thing" (1996) and Charlie Condou, the 1998 winner known for his role on the British soap opera "Coronation Street " are among notable past champions.

Over the years the competition has been embroiled in controversies, including criticisms of body image standards and reinforcement of stereotypes within the lgbtq+Q+ community. Despite these challenges organizers have taken steps to address concerns and uphold the events reputation, for inclusivity and positivity.
